[Mailman-Users] mailman locking woes

Mailman has wedged itself several times now. Each time it has lots of 
copies of itself running, all waiting for the lock on a list. It looks
like whatever process is holding the lock has wedged, and the whole 
list has got stuck. 

I noticed there were one or two zombies so I'm guessing that somehow 
the zombies hold the lock, but I'm not sure of that.

Has anyone seen this before?
